Excellent day …
This week’s company book testimonial adheres to on from ‘Good to Great’ (reviewed in November), which details just how great firms came to be fantastic, and also sustained it for many years.
‘ How the Mighty Fall’ also created by Jim Collins, investigates why these as soon as magnificent firms (some also in the last publication) instantly start to crumble and also even die.
As always with Collins, it an effectively considered publication, backed up with years of accurate data.
It’s fascinating, because decrease can be spotted and also reversed, as described in some examples utilized.
Yet what’s amazing, is the number of formerly effective companies, who become arrogant with their own success, and selected to ignore the indication of decrease, up until its means far too late.
Collins research uncovered a global 5 step stage of decline, which the book centres around:
1) Hubris birthed of Success
2) Undisciplined Pursuit of More
3) Denial of Risk and also Peril
4) Grasping for Salvation
5) Capitulation to Irrelevance or Death
It reminded me regarding our very own battle with decline before we closed our retail shops to transform right into a workplace technology options business.
Currently we’ve begun a second business installing home and also office electrical car chargers, we’ll absolutely utilize the lessons found out to remain grounded as well as vigilant.
‘How the Might Fall’ gets a thumbs up and 5 celebrities.
